Mountain goat horn growth.
In collaboration with BC Wildlife Biologists, this student will examine regional and temporal variability in annual horn increments of harvested goats, to look for evidence of changes in age of first reproduction in females, investigate the effects of weather and determine whether early horn growth is correlated with age at harvest. Data on horn growth of marked individuals at Caw Ridge, Alberta, will also be available.
